Sea Turtle Talks
A Virtual Event
We are excited to announce the launch of Sea Turtle Talks, a three-day virtual event to be held September 14–16, 2021!
The goals of this event are to re-connect the global sea turtle community in advance of the 40th International Sea Turtle Symposium* and provide new, in-formal opportunities and discussions to learn about sea turtle research, conservation, and management around the world.
Planned virtual events include Twitter Talks (i.e., Twitter conference), a rehab chat (i.e., planning workshop), and a panel discussion.
This is an International Sea Turtle Society (ISTS) event, supported and promoted by the ISTS Board of Directors.
Separate registration required for each event.
